Gifts from my Fall Harvest

Today the high only reached the low 60's in our neck of the woods.  One of the last days to pull veggies from the garden.  It is a sad time but a also a day to be proud.  I am full of amazement that I planted most of these plants that filled the 60'x80' veggie garden all from seed.  I DID IT!  This is truly a day to remember. Starting over 90% of the produce I grew this year not only helped my self esteme it also made me more aware of the health aspects of growing your own food.

At sunset a basket full of peppers,tomatillos', and blooms are cherished. 


Shawna Coronado of 'The Casual Gardner' asked : "Whatcha pulling out of your fall garden" so I took the challenge and shared how  creating my garden made a difference in my life.

We will miss all that color as the white snow covers it all up, but the hope of spring keeps us alive for more new splashes of color.
I planted leftover Easter lilies many months ago, and for some reason, I guess they wanted to sprout again to create more energy for the bulbs. They are going to get frosted soon.

Loved your salute to my 2009 "Get It Garden" Challenge so much, that I published it on my blog also - http://bit.ly/uzdvQ.

Bren - you are awesome and I'm glad we're friends!

XOXOXO, Shawna

Wow! And I thought I was good to put out cucumbers, tomatoes, and a couple of pepper plants. You've had a bountiful harvest at your own hand. You inspire me.
